Favorite Baby Products: 1-3 Months

I’m terribly late on getting this list out to ya’ll. I’m finally starting to catch up on things again. Going through the baby things, I’ve come up with a great list to start with. These items are really the only things I used the first few months (aside from clothes, diapers, bath essentials, etc). These are the bigger items that I couldn’t have lived without. I hope they help you as you put your registry together or you’re at home with your newborn and realize you need some things.

If you have any questions, please comment below:)

 

Fisher-Price My Little Snugapuppy Deluxe Newborn Rock N Play Sleeper

I had this by my bed at night and had my son sleep in this some of the time. People will say this is a no-no, but I don’t care. It worked and he was fine. I was right there next to him and woke up every noise he made anyway. I think he loved how cozy it was around his body and the slight vibrations it made.

Graco Pack ‘n Play Playard Bassinet Changer with Cuddle Cove Rocking Seat

I kept this in the living/dining room and it was a great place to change his diaper, place him for a nap and the best part is, it grows as he gets older. Right now the changing table and bassinet are off, so is the first level crib. He uses the bottom crib since he can stand up. It packs up nicely in a travel case.

SwaddleMe Original Swaddle 3-PK

Not every baby likes being swaddled but my little boy did. I tried the swaddle blankets and they never held up very long. These gems are adjustable and can make him nice and snug. I’d put my son in this and he was instantly relaxed. For this registry list, I’m only including SM.

These are what I got my son:

Lions | Beep Beep | Grey Chevron and Stars | Little Whalers | Superstar

Some ideas for the girls:

Busy Bees | Girly Bug | Pink Cursive | Who Loves You | Floral Geo

Puj Tub – The Soft, Foldable Baby Bath Tub (White)

I don’t know about you, but for me, bending over a tub to bathe my baby was not a fun idea. This little tub fits right into your bathroom sink. It’s flexible so it fits most sinks very well. This made it easy to give him a bath every night to help soothe him to sleep. Don’t worry, I didn’t use soap every night. The warm water was enough to relax him. 🙂 Another thing I loved about this tub is it will lay flat for easy storage or you can hang it on the back of the door.

Also comes in Blue | Grey

FridaBaby Nasal Aspirator with 20 Extra Hygiene Filters

Now this might look weird and seem a bit gross but I PROMISE you, it’s not! I started out with the snot sucking bulb dohicky and it sucked (and not in a good way)! I bought this and OMG, it worked wonders. Now my son got a cold at week 2. At that young age you can’t do anything for him except hold him. I would suck the snot out, run a humidifier, and diffuse essential oils (I’ll blog about that later). Just so you know…when you suck the snot it goes into a plastic tube. The filter is where the tube and the hose meet…SO, the snot never goes into your mouth. I promise that! 🙂

Fisher Price My Little Snugapuppy Cradle and Swing

Lifesaver! My son spent many hours in this. I had it in the living room with me and for naps he would sleep in this. The rocking worked like a charm and he slept really well. Even in a noisy household. As he became more aware of things, he loved looking at himself in the dome mirror. I loved how you could change direction of the sleep basket so it can either go side to side, or if you turned the basket, it would go forward and back.

Infant Optics DXR-8 Video Baby Monitor with Interchangeable Optical Lens

Being a new mom I couldn’t imagine not have a video monitor to give me peace of mind when he’s sleeping. I wanted a monitor that didn’t use WiFi since I’ve read terrible things about people hacking into them. This unit only talks to each other. It has pan and tilt and even zoom. The monitor has a long range…I’ve even taken it outside when doing lawn work. It can sit on a shelf or hang on the wall. Highly recommended by me!

Gerber 5 Count Heavyweight Gauze Prefold, White

I didn’t buy these to use at diapers. My mom said they make great burb cloths so I wanted to see if she was right…guess what, she was right! They absorb great and they are a great size that holds a great deal of spit-up! They do shrink a bit but still work well. In fact, I still use them. Why buy something fancy when these do much better? Exactly.

Dr. Brown’s Natural Flow Bottles – 4 Oz. 6 Count

I didn’t buy these to use at diapers. My mom said they make great burb cloths so I wanted to see if she was right…guess what, she was right! They absorb great and they are a great size that holds a great deal of spit-up! They do shrink a bit but still work well. In fact, I still use them. Why buy something fancy when these do much better? Exactly.

Chicco Bravo Trio Travel System – Papyrus

I decided on this travel system because of how the stroller folds up. It wasn’t bulky like others I tested in the store. I also loved how easy it was to install the base. It even comes with a leveler to help insure it’s level and correct. The stroller is so smooth and easy to steer, you really can do it with one hand. The storage underneath was another key factor for me and this had plenty.

Also comes in Lilla | Empire | Polaris | Rainfall

Stork Craft Hoop Glider and Ottoman Set, Espresso/Beige

I shopped forever looking for the perfect glider for the nursery. I wanted something with a high back so the late night feedings, I could lay my head back. It glides so smoothly and is very comfortable to sit in.

Also comes in Cherry

Boppy Nursing Pillow and Positioner – Bare Naked

I used this from day one! I didn’t use it for breastfeeding but still used it for bottle feeding. It game him a nice comfy place to lay without putting all the pressure on my arm. Still have it today!

Choose from many different covers for it!

The Sleepeasy Solution: The Exhausted Parent’s Guide to Getting Your Child to Sleep from Birth to Age 5

Around week 6 I transitioned my son from my bed/room to his own room and crib. This book helped me make that transition. It’s good up to the age of 5 so this will be a keeper. My son has been sleeping in his crib since week 6 and I reference this book during each phase he goes through to keep him on track with sleeping.

Also comes in Kindle | MP3 CD
